We've seen the Banjo Billy bus tours around Boulder for years, and finally we decided to play tourist in our own town, and took the tour. The bus driver was fun and engaging. Yes, the jokes are corny, but it made for an amusing experience....More

We had a great little tour on the Banjo Billy bus. The tour guide had a lot of interesting stories on the history of Boulder. Sit on a saddle, couch or recliner and enjoy the ride!

A unique bus, with equally unique seating, ride across the city, lots of ghost stories and a superb guide. What else is required for a fun trip. And Banjo Billy's certainly had it all. I had loads of fun on this trip.

We took this tour as part of the CU Boulder Family weekend. It was limited to 25 people per bus and it was worth the wait. The bus itself is quirky just like the local scene to modify an old school bus into something unique....More

This was a great way to learn some neat things about Boulder from the unusual transportation option of this tricked out school bus. Miles and Patrick were great and professional BUT fun too. There were nearly all ages on our tour and everyone seemed to...More
